The Appraisal Process

The appraisal process includes the research, compilation and analysis of all pertinent data as it relates to your specific requirements. AVK Appraisal Services provides several types of reports in standardized or narrative book form.

Interior Inspection

A list of all assets and defects are objectively analyzed and compiled in a detailed written report.

Property Condition

Includes the specifics of construction, property layout, number of rooms and specific features, equipment; improvements and renovations. Online permits are researched if available.

Neighborhood and surrounding areas

An assessment is made on a property’s proximity to services, facilities and amenities as they may (or may not) relate and affect its market value.

Property Classification

Public records are analyzed to confirm sales and make comparisons in the particular Sacramento region. A range of public records and sources are used including zoning records, tax data, professional associations and other applicable publications.

Calculating the Market Value

Sales Comparison

In its most basic form, this approach is built on the premise that the market value of a property can be derived from comparable properties in the neighborhood and market area.

Cost Approach

Since the market obviously relates to cost, this approach takes into account and analyzes market trends as defined by two specific elements: Land value plus improvements, minus depreciation.

Income Profit

Generally reserved for valuations of multi unit and commercial investment properties. An estimate of market value using the income capitalization approach relies on the perspective that the current and continued income of real estate is a measure of its value. Current or potential income of the subject is compared to similar properties using a gross rent multiplier - this is the common method for 2-4 unit investments.
